EDITOR’S

LETTER

The sun has finally

made an appearance!

As all you fashion

and lifestyle retailers

will know, when the

April showers and

grey clouds make way

for sunshine, it’s time

to prepare for a summer of pounding the

exhibition hall aisles, chasing for the next

big thing. You’ll be getting ready to tour

the country in pursuit of the hottest tonal

palettes and future motifs with the trail

leading you to Harrogate, London and

Birmingham. After swooning over the

inspiring showcase of emerging talent at

Pulse, I can’t wait to see what suppliers and

designers have up their sleeves for spring/

summer 2018.

As it’s a chaotic season, we’ve put

together a bumper exhibition preview

issue to help you find your way round the

biggest trade shows – and ensure that you

leave no gem unturned in your pursuit for

something new.There are comprehensive

previews of the season’s mainstays, Home

& Gift (page 49) and Moda (page 73), as

well as a look at Scoop (page 89), which

seems to be expanding season on season,

now taking over every floor of the ultra-

chic Saatchi Gallery.

On top of all this, we have a full footwear

and accessories sector guide for the UK’s

leading fashion trade exhibition, Pure

London (page 29), which is promising a

space-age take on sartorial showcasing with

its Oriental Futures campaign concept.

As well as our show previews, regular

features, and interviews, we take a look at

the best hats, tech accessories and weekend

bags available at the moment.This issue’s

competition prize of jewellery products

worth £500 RRP is courtesy of popular

jewellery label Kit Heath.

Happy reading,

JULY/AUGUST 2017

Editor’s pick

If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s boring computer and phone accessories. Technology

is an area of endless possibilities and boundless development potential; so why are we

restricted to plain black laptop cases and bland phone wallets? Luckily, canny fashion labels

are seeing the opportunity to carve new niches, which brings me to Jessica Russell Flint’s

vibrant laptop clutches. With cute animal patterns, bright colours and cute details, they’re

bound to brighten up work meetings and commutes for seasons to come.
